my version of honeycomb.

5:20:00 AM

so things have been quite busy around here - still! in between getting the last of the class layouts and projects prepared for this year and painting more furniture, my calendar has been filling up quickly for next year which is a good thing. i am thankful! thought i would share my version of the honeycomb - a favourite layout done last week. with scraps! my ultimate enjoyment in paper crafts. so what can i say - i love scraps and lovingly care for them amongst my other supplies. these were all scraps cut into 3x3 inch squares and worked perfectly to trace my template on and cut out. they are far from perfect - like life and just how i love it! the layout is finished off with simple strips of journaling, rub-ons and a title. oh and don't forget the buttons.
for some of the hexagons i went back afterwards and added a second raised layer using a different piece of scrap paper - adding more interest and dimension
my title is created partly using aancient sheet of basic grey lettering and half cut using my slice machine. the word 'dream' was cut using 7gypsies patterned paper and then glazed once it was stuck down. it always amazes me how people can first glaze their words and then trying to get it to stay flat (while it curls madly)while drying. this is not the right way - adhere everything to your layout first and then add your layer of glaze last - move your project to the side and walk away!! trust me - you will learn to love glaze and your projects more...
this half sheet (scrap) of 7gypsies rub-ons have been lying around for ages! and finally they found a home. i am always amazed at the quality of their rub-ons. even after years of floating around without their protective sheet at the back - they glide on like butter. just wonderful!
thanks for stopping by! i hope you are having a creative week and things in your neck of the woods are slowing down a bit! blessings and love...
